What Will Happen If APC Tries To Impeach Saraki” – Tambuwal

Aminu tambuwal governor of Sokoto state, says
the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will
resist any illegal move to impeach Senate
President Bukola Saraki.

Following Saraki’s defection from the All
Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP, some
lawmakers and APC chieftains have asked him
to step down.

On Wednesday, Adams Oshiomhole, APC
national chairman, said it is “a matter of
honour” for Saraki to “leave the crown (senate
presidency) in the house that the crown belongs
to.”

The PDP caucus in the house of representatives
subsequently raised an alarm that some
senators were plotting to impeach Saraki
through the backdoor.

But speaking at the PDP national executive
council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday,
Tambuwal, who just recently left the APC as
well, said any attempt to impeach Saraki
unconstitutionally will harm Nigeria’s
democracy.

“When I hear that some people are trying to
break into the chambers of the senate to steal
the mace and install a pseudo president of the
senate, I wonder whether they actually know
the rules of our democratic engagement. It’s
not a Gestapo, we are in democracy,” he said.

“If the senators have confidence in Bukola
Saraki, they should continue to sustain him as
president of the senate. And so be it with Mr.
Speaker, Dogara.

“So, nobody should be afraid. There is a
process. And we must respect due process and
rule of law. And Nigeria is not a banana
republic. We will not take it from anybody. Let
them hear it very clear. If you try it, we will
match out our forces in this country and jam
you.

“Because we are talking about democracy. We
cannot afford to allow anybody, no matter how
highly placed, to toy with the future of about
200 million people in this country.”
He also said if Saraki decided change his
political party, there is nothing anybody can do
about it.

“The constitution of this country is very clear
that members of the senate and the house of
representatives can choose from among
themselves their own president of the senate or
speaker without leaning to any political party,”
Tambuwal said.
